Flight Plan

What does success look like?

Expat attendees utilize their passion, relationships, expertise and resources to continue the Buffalo renaissance, improving the quality of life for all Western New York residents.

In Detroit, their homecoming event was a tremendous success, resulting in over $350 million in total investments after 4 years. With your help, we can achieve the same for Buffalo.

Right Here. Right Now.
